tonight on the extremely fluid situation in ukraine, changing by the hour. wendell goler covers the president's brief address, but first, senior foreign affairs correspondent amy kellogg keeping a close eye from london on this developing story. good evening, amy. >> hi, bret. the warm glow of the olympic closing ceremony has dispalted in less than a wee ukraine's crimea has probably something to do with local militia groups, protection groups, bret, but certainly, there is a russian military presence down there, and the question and the concern is where is it all leading? another jarring wake-up call in ukraine. armed men take over the civilian airport in the semiautonomous region of crimea, and where russia bases its black sea fleet. russia says its personnel there are doing business as usual, protecting their black sea fleet. ukraine's interim government jumped to declare this a violation of the terms of the agreement. >> we have the fact there are disguised military from the russian black sea fleet illegally conducting their actions in ukrainian territory in the republic of c

that the opposition on longer apply in this and they were in fact trying to destabilize the situation in ukraine and it seems that this pretty much in keeping this up but the real question now is because as i've said this really changes everything how cold the west and in your impact and reacts to the use of revelations. what a new marine asada said earlier that sounds like a real eye opener for a lot of people specifically for action at the dinner conversation but of what this means for the eu what sort of consequence two weeks back well we have heard all along that the pre much the western media and europe included also have been saying that the opposition that they have something to train them as freedom fighters and ignoring all the people who were saying that in fact some of these activists are former criminals the prisoners and then looking out to promote their own agendas in some case of barry and ashton mistake by radical within saying this for a number of days here are a hero on artsy know this goes to show that perhaps he knew doesn't know it doesn't have the full picture and this is j
. that's what happened a few minutes ago in london. >> let's update you on the situation in the ukraine. the center of appear appears to have shifted from the capitol kiev, the other side of the story emerging in crimea. gunman have taken over a government building and prompted a russian flag. that prompted warnings to moscow not to take action. the new performy war is being played out. >> tents are being made here to turn crimea like kiev in reverse. heavily armed men are protecting it from what they see as profoundly undemocratic forces. their supporters not so many, but they are here to tell you that they would like nothing more than russian tanks on the streets to protect them. >> american army was supported in different countries, today we support russian army, because everyone of us has relatives in russia. >> the police lines start by just a handful of uncertain looking men didn't look very impressive. the small group proves just how unimpressive it was. the point being that they wanted to tell the armed group in charge of parliament that they were with them, and that they were i
minister ever in the ukraine. these are changes that governments in a normal situation would find very hard to implement, especially changes to the subsidies. atare not only looking households being hit, but major industries being hit. also, in terms of the way the whole system is set up -- these changes will need to be done fairly fast. the risk is that they may be watered down to a popular consensus. or the speed at which they are introduced may affect them. at this moment, we still have a situation of civil unrest, especially in crimea, but also in kiev. there are defense units in the streets. this situation, any sort of aggravation of public discontent could lead to some secessionist ambition. at the moment, we are saying that the governors of the eastern provinces fell short of calling for separatism. they called for increased self-governance until the situation in kiev can be settled down. up in ae going to end situation where ukraine and betweenimbo, half were the european union and halfway between russia, but not really having a strong place with either? >> if we have protracted civ
and sort things out. it seems to me that the situation in ukraine demands the close working together of russia and the united states to avert a catastrophic world war. >> ukraine's president accused russia of approach okaying his country, like it did with another former soviet republic. comparisons have been made to the russian, georgia war. the conflict lasting five days and russia won. it begone over two disputed territories, south ossetia. in the year leading up to the conflict both countries accused the other of attacking citizens. georgia made the first move, launching an attack. russia retaliated. five days later the war was over. the result russia controls that area. >> for more on putin's response, let's turn to seven fish. a political science professor. first i want to get your thoughts on the comparison. do you feel like russia is following a similar path with the ukraine? >> it's a very different situation. the situation in ukraine is qualitatively different. in georgia there was a qualification from the georgian side. there's no provocation from the ukrainian side. in the
of war between russia and ukraine? >> right now it's very difficult situation for ukraine. russian expansion into crimea bring a lot of bad feeling for all ukrainians as everybody has said. right now main point we have to unite all together, it's united all country and the situation right now about independence of ukraine because it's not a question about crimea, some part of -- part of east ukraine cities to bring russian flags and put flags on government building. and meetings going on right now -- meetings starting right now in some cities. very important point right now, keep in the control whole situation for ukrainians. because i am more than sure it's the scenario, create not from ukraine outside of ukraine. >> you believe that most of what is happening in ukraine is being created from outside, which means by russia. do you think that ukraine, the ukrainian government needs military help from the west, from nato? do you call on the west to intervene to help ukraine militarily? >> we call right now to support because it's a negotiation in budapest between united states, great
say that is fortuitous. there is a situation between the ukraine and russia and we are looking at the impact that comes through commodity and energy prices. today, it does not look like this is going to be a deflationary event for the last. that is something we have to be wary of. >> talk about emerging markets and we have elections in india for april and we have a lot of movement in china. without corporate default. are you more cautious than you were? >> i think the answer is that we remain cautious on emerging markets and the growth cycle has not yet got to a pays for a base that benefits the emerging markets and you are seeing the problem come through in china. china knows they cannot rely so heavily on the west for demands and gdp growth on exports. there is also investment spending that has been a big contributor to growth and cannot continue at this sort of pace that it has been. it has to come more from consumer spending and that is hard to generate. there could be a lot of pickups. >> the chief investment officer. we are back into. >> in london, this is on the move in
on the market reaction so far to the ukraine-russia situation. >>right now the market's reaction has been relatively benign. we really haven't seen a powerful quality trade coming into the markets yet although we have seen it somewhat. on monday evening the treasuries closed at about a 260 yieldand we did see risk assets soften somewhat. so we have seen a rotation from risk assets into the safe haven assets. i would expect today to see a continuation of the flight to quality trade but the market is really standing down in terms of a really powerful flight to quality trade to assess what's going on with respect to the ukraine. so obama came out and said any kind of military intervention is really off of the table and they're going to try and persuade russia to leave the ukraine through an series of economic sanctions. but i think this means that we're in for a long drawn out affair. putin has done the calculus and if you look at the map, the ukraine forms an important economic corridor for russia between asia and the european union. so it's going to take a lot to get the russians to back d

there doesn't seem to be a speed bump if we get past the ukraine situation. what you calling for for the major indices for the year? >> we're calling for 6% to 7% on the s&p for year end and also interest rates to go a little bit higher. perhaps you get that 3-1/4% range. if your looking for opportunity in regards to investing we look towards health care, consumer discretionary as two sectors we believe you confined good value. cheryl: i know you like t. j. max. you do like consumer discretionary. thank you, chad. adam: let's talk technology. cheryl: looking to enter the drone business list of reports say the social media site is buying tighten aerospace for $60 million but why? let's bring in executive director todd able to. facebook making a move in the drone company. >> everyone is wondering why drones, or cameras up in the air but this is what we saw a google do with project minute and south connecting the rest of the world, two thirds of the planet doesn't have access to internet connections so we am looking in third-world countries how to get imam line. i was talking to adam and the ques

the situation, which is a multi national political dialogue about ukraine. potentially under the auspices of the osce. the -- seeing that president putin has accepted this in principal, fist not the esce but that's a detail. why is that important? really, because russia's position, in my opinion, is that it will not tolerate a hostile anti-russian government being installed by unconstitutional means with the support of the western power necessary a country next to it which it has vital interests in. and it wants to have a process whereby ukraine's internal politics and its external relations are agreed by everyone who has an interesting. now, this position, of course, is rejected by western europe and the united states on the grounds that it compromises or qualifies in some way ukraine's sovereigncy. but getting to that position without abandoning the point of principal is probably the way through. >> you say putin goes into damage limitation exercises as soon as he's got what he wants. isn't what he wants the crimea here? he's saying that situation is going to resolve itself or is he goi

in ukraine. president putin asked for it, he got it unanimously. he called the situation in ukraine extraordinary with russian lives under threat. not long after the vote in the biggest pro-russian city in ukraine, chaos. dozens were injured as police battled crowds who raised the russian flag on the regional government building. these protests repeated in other cities in ukraine, east where many areas are now slipping out of the control of these men. ukraine's new government, unelected, untested and in a crisis. we wouldn't give in to russian provocation, says the prime minister. exactly what he can do is not clear. he can't stop this. russia, they chant. on crimea's streets they are excited russian troops are here. they want to see more. >> to protect us. >> reporter: you say the russian troops are here to protect you? >> of course, we are russians. we are russians. >> reporter: all eyes are on the military airport where russian planes, up to a dozen, delivered troops and equipment overnight. crimea, now tense, waiting to see if more, many more russian troops join these men. and t
are on a collision course over that situation in ukraine was just leave your animal situation. the piece here and there in a very difficult to position because she opened one hand one student had to negotiate to de escalate. but you've also took me a position he as he had the fun they said the unity of the sovereignty and also that air time out and take a teal signed up to ukraine is in cotton and they cannot them now and that's to be attached and they also said dislikes. he carried the tradition of the witnesses said they came out and they'd taken them the russian decision still a bit of the very key a standstill it puts him in the very difficult position and then the tuesday meeting and then did they now have to be credible and they have in an emergency meeting which is only on monday but maybe take so long because it's an ipod to decide what they can do now would it be saying since when are they reconsider and energy union nations that though russia. it's a very difficult position. europe is good now. again that's the question seems like brussels is very intent on keeping those diplomatic
the situation in ukraine. let's listen. >> russia has legitimate interests in what happens in the neighboring state. that does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that state. we have said that if in fact there is any evidence out there that russian speakers or russian natives or russian nationals are in any way being threatened there are ways of dealing with that through international mechanisms and we're prepared to make sure that the rights of all ukrainians are upheld and in fact in conversations we've had with the government in kiev they have been more than willing to work with the international community and with russia to provide such assurances. so, the fact that we are still seeing soldiers out of their barracks in crimea is an indication to which what's happening there is not based on actual concern for russian nationals or russian speakers inside of ukraine but is based on russia seeking through force to exert influence on a neighboring country. that is not how international law is supposed to operate. i would also note just, you know, the w
of an effect this situation in ukraine would have on the financial markets all week that they didn't decide that it would be having any considerable effect but that seems to have changed now within the last couple of hours people are now worried that the situation in ukraine and possible reactions by russia could have it the stabilizing effect politically and economically. one of the reasons why the ducks went down. in spite of a very good to consumer climate in germany. another reason people just think that a more positive news surprisingly positive news has to come from the economic side in from the corporate side in order to perhaps reach the record highs again. in frankfurt there let's look at the role market numbers starting in frankfurt the dax down by about one four percent on the day ninety six sixty one the clothes. euro stocks fifty also down slightly less thirty one forty eight as and over in new york the dow is training in just slightly out that sixty one ninety two and the euro down against the dollar one thirty six seventy one. anchored in the air bus group had a healthy year
is the ukraine has been invaded and controlled by vladimir putin. >> i think, erin, it's going to be a situation where if the united states wants to stand out to the russian invasion of the crimea, then they are going to have to do something and there could be such a thing as embargo against russian oil and significant effects on europe that would have to be coordinated with nato. those are some of the things that we could do short of military force in a case like this. >> how bad could this get? when you were president of georgia, hundreds of people were killed, tarnnks came in, troops came in. is this just the beginning? >> i think it's just the beginning. some people are trying to argue that it's irresponsible behavior of georgia. what would you say this time? and actually, the reality is that it's reminiscent of what happens in the 21st century, very much like the land by then nazi germany and then of course this time exactly the way how european powers said for poland, united states, the united kingdom and also russia, together pledged to guarantee territory integrity in 1994 when ukraine g
